Strange! Grave is more important than big house for Odisha's couple

Strange but true as nobody knows when life will end and we have to make a shift towards our grave. In this busy life an elderly couple of Odisha prepare a grave for themselves in their Souri village of Nuagada block in the Gajapati district.

Laxman Bhuyan (80) and his wife Jengi Bhuyan (70) are living in an asbestos-roofed house in the village as they think that building house is not important rather making a grave with a tomb for his wife and himself is necessary. He has spent Rs 1.50 lakh for this and sold away whatever assets he had.

Despite having sons and daughters, the couple lives alone. Laxman said, “We are in the last stage of life and do not know when will die. We will live here in the grave after death. That’s why I constructed it on my own will.”

As per the sources, the graves were constructed two to three years ago.
